Question Ferries Denmark to Sweden

We are intending to travel from Copenhagen to Sweden via the Halsingor Ferry and whilst I can see they have 3 departures and hour , anybody out there with local knowledge who can advise whether I should book in advance or will I get on board without delay if just turn up on the day ?
(Estimate will be at the terminal about 10-11 am on Saturday 22nd June)

I can ask locally if you want, Let me know!

Hi Anders

Thanks , had not thought to ask you this one.
Was looking at the ferry as it gives a more direct access to your suggested more westerly route north which we will now be taking.
Which is the more time efficient do you think (motorway v ferry + waiting time) ?

You're coming by bike? I would assume You will fit in the first boat. If they have 3 departures an hour, your worst waiting time is 20 mins?

As Anders said, you could take the Bridges?

1.You could do Puttgarden - Roedby (GER - DK) ferry and then the bridge to Malmoe.

2.Or you can skip the ferry, and do Storbeltbro bridge AND the Malmoe bridge (Oeresundbro)

I think 1. is the most commonly used. We did this last May on a Van. Just queued up at the line and waited for maybe 15-20 mins. its easy and they're helpful.

Remember; If you do decide to use ferries all the way, remember to tell them that at the first ticket office. It will be cheaper when you buy both tickets at the same time.

Anders can verify this.. but that's how I've been told.

We will be using the Putgarden Ferry to cross to Copenhagen a few days earlier so could buy both tickets then but do they need a departure time ?
If so what time should we allow from central Copenhagen to get to the Halsingor ferry ?

Here's info on the DK/SWE ferries, if you haven't seen it already.

Scandlines.com - ScandlinesEn

this is just a guess, but I think they don't need a departure time for the second ferry?

the distance from Copenhagen to Helsingor is about 50 km, so I would guess 1 hr is enough, even with some delays?

I havent used the ferries much.. we usually take the bridge since it saves us the trouble of keeping a time. Check scandlines homepage.

Ill ask locally and come back to you.

I think we may decide to go with the ferry afterall as seems illogiocal to use the bridge when we would have to do 50% of a counterclockwise circle to get where the ferry disembarks.

Can anyone advise which terminal we need to sue , our satnav routing program shows two (one above another) I assume one is a departure jetty and the other arrivals and the roads look different for each ?

Got some info from some local guys.

The Helsingør - Helsingborg line runs close schedules and the crossing takes 15minutes.

Bikeriders normally dont leave the cardeck and keep the bikes upright by musclepower.

If you miss one ferry, just wait for the next one.
